6:01 am
new orleans nearly 300 years old. there is history here. we have been talking to people about what they expect from everyone coming into town. of course, the city is going to bring in money with all of these out-of-towners but if you think the super bowl is a big party with 150 to 200,000 people coming into the city, mardi gras, they expect way more than that for mardi gras. and, of course, as i told you, it's in the middle of mardi gras season and they know how to party out here. >> it's like two perfect worlds colliding. ravens, 49ers fans and mardi gras-goers. thank you, michelle griego live in new orleans. before the 9ers landed in the big easy they got a ceremonial sendoff in the south bay. the team boarded a delta charter in san jose yesterday for what could be the ride of their lives. if they win that game. as the plane taxied the runway a couple of fire trucks bid farewell with a two hose
6:02 am
salute. dozens of fans showed up to show their support outside the 49er training facility in santa clara. decked out in 9er gear fans waited to catch a glimpse of the players as they drove by. colin kaepernick had fun. coach jim harbaugh keeping a lower profile. the coach all business right now. fans didn't seem to mind. they just wanted to wish their teams the best of luck. >> doing what you're doing, you got great fans cheering you on. >> good luck and play hard. don't give up on yourself. >> those fans did their best to show their love as the buses finally rolled by beginning a journey hopefully to a big super bowl winner on sunday. 9ers did hold a press conference upon arriving in new orleans. here's some sound. >> did you think that the offensive college was going to work in the nfl? >> i thought it would work to
6:03 am
some extent. i didn't think it was something you could run every play. there's too many good athletes on defense at this level. >> colin work the beanie there. kaepernick taking questions from the reporters. he is coming off the plane right there. team very focused. we'll hear from coach harbaugh coming up. michelle has been out in the big easy, you landed saturday night. you have been eating all this great food. you have been collecting beads having a good time. >> frank, it's called research. come on. i'm a reporter. this is reporter involvement. i'm supposed to be out here eating. [ laughter ] >> good luck with that research come friday. >> it's been great so far. people in new orleans have been welcoming. they are welcoming all of the
6:04 am
outer towners with open arms, feeding us, telling us about the culture of the city. we were walking around the french quarter, bourbon street, beads flying, music everywhere, live music, musicians on every corner. so the team will have a lot to do. they need to stay focused on super bowl xlvii even in new orleans. 150 to 200,000 people are expected to be here for the super bowl. and it's supposed to rake in new orleans about $400 million possibly more with everyone spending money at the restaurants, hotels and bars. another city is raking in cash because of the super bowl and that's our very own san francisco. and cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington has more on that. >> reporter: good morning. well, of course we want the
6:05 am
49ers to win. people who work and live in san francisco could profit. economists predict $120 extra a year in personal income. there are a few reasons for this. first of all, winning brings confidence and pumped up fans are big spenders. also, the city has been put on a national stage. we are getting exposure and press and that also brings confidence and finally fans are expected to spend $11 billion on super bowl related purchases including 8 million pounds of tortilla chips for super bowl parties, 1.25 billion chicken wings, 51 million cases of beer and countless t-shirts, jerseys and other clothing. >> in general, san francisco should be a little bit more active, lively exuberant optimistic place and all those things are good for consumer spending. >> reporter: winning the super bowl could improve the city's image.
6:06 am
it could bring in more fans spending more money. the host city makes big bucks. new orleans will rake in $435 million by the super bowl sunday. live in san francisco, elissa harrington, cbs 5. that's a lot of money. all right, elissa. of course, super bowl xlvii is trending big time on social media outlets. i have been on facebook this morning, as well. with more on that is our very own cate caugiran in the newsroom. good morning, cate. >> reporter: good morning, michelle. yes. super bowl is definitely trending on facebook. a lot of things that people are talking about right now is trying to make super bowl monday an unofficial holiday and there is a petition out there to change that. that petition points out about 111 million americans watched last year's super bowl. and it says by making super bowl monday a holiday, the streets will be safer on sunday night and more people will be productive on tuesday. of course, people we spoke to
6:07 am
seem to agree. >> it's all about beyonce. so yes, new orleans, houston, beyonce, i think we should have a three-day festival. >> i believe it should be a national holiday because most people like myself and the working class of america have to work. and i feel like that we should have the day off so we can celebrate our fellow san franciscans, whoo, 49ers! >> reporter: don't count on taking next monday off. the petition has around 2600 signatures. and michelle that's all short of the 100,000 needed for the white house to even look at it but hey, michelle, i grew up in japan. that means super bowl monday was always super bowl regardless just because of the fact that we were a day ahead. so i always had super bowl monday. reporting live in the newsroom, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> reporter: that would be a great time to take off especially if the 9ers win, lawrence. then we could get two days off. >> that would be nice to stretch it off.
6:08 am
i think there will be a lot of sick calls that day regardless of the game. you know what? we have some changes coming our way and i think you're going to like them as we'll see much- needed sunshine and warmer temperatures outside. right now cool. hi-def doppler tracking rain, not much yet. in fact clouds continuing to pass across our skies as a weak system sliding on through. but after this we're pretty much done with that. temperatures not as cold this morning. seeing breezy conditions at the coastline and 30s and 40s. by the afternoon, a lot of sunshine out there maybe just a couple of passing clouds. highs in the 50s and low 60s. a little cool and brisk at the coastline but much warmer weather to come we'll talk more about that in a moment. let's check the roads with liza battalones. >> better news now, lawrence, for mass transit. amtrak just gave us a call and they have restored service on the capitol corridor line. but you're looking at least 30 minutes, 30 to 90-minute delays on the capitol corridor line
6:09 am
because of earlier problems. again, trains are running between sacramento and davis. we'll go back outside check out the bay bridge commute where it is starting to look like a monday. you can see a backup on the outside lanes from about the 880 overcrossing. if you have fastrak, you're just rolling through with just a minor backup as you need to slow down as you head through the tollbooth. we'll check the rest of the commute 101 approaching mckee. no big problems for all of san jose. that is moving well in both directions of 101. and the san mateo bridge westbound traffic looking good approaching the toll plaza. it's more crowded now but no big delays at the pay gates on the right. traffic still doing okay across the bridge know foster city. keep in mind there is a water main break which has shut down the intersection of cal aroga outside southland mall. frank. >> thank you. this just in. three people now under arrest this morning all in connection with a deadly nightclub fire in brazil over the weekend. the fire broke out early yesterday morning in the

[ laughter ] a few clouds out there right now, i think we're looking good as we sail in toward the next few days as high pressure just beginning to build in. today kind of a transitional day. so still breezy out at the coastline with the clouds not quite as cold and then it looks like this afternoon, sunshine and a mix of sun and clouds and milder days are ahead. low pressure now kicking eastward. that ridge of high pressure starting to really build into the bay area today. it will start to settle in nicely. and we'll see some seasonal temperatures and then some warmer weather as we head in
6:19 am
toward the middle of the week. if you plan to travel around the state still maybe some showers toward eureka, should be dry though in the central valley with 50s there. high country looking good a few clouds but 31 degrees in lake tahoe. around the bay area today, 57 degrees in san jose. about 56 a little breezy into half moon bay this afternoon. 55 in pacifica. east bay temperatures into the 50s. maybe some low 60s into the napa valley. and then inside the bay looking at some 50s and 60s. so over looking the next cup days, the ridge will build in nicely. wednesday and thursday well into the 60s outside. a little spring-like weather coming our way. and then next weekend the clouds roll back in and temperatures cool down. but the next few days looking nice. >> but you always kind of rain on the weekend. >> isn't that the way it's working out lately? >> we'll take it. love the sunshine. it is 6:21. no more free rides for drivers parking in san francisco on the weekends. meter enforcement is in effect

6:30 am
new orleans this morning. good morning, michelle. >> reporter: good morning. we are having a great time in new orleans taking in all the sights and sounds. we have been talking about food all morning but let's talk about music. we are walking around the french quarter for the last two nights and there's this music coming out of every little cafe, there's jazz everywhere. we ran and talked to some musicians to kind of traveled the country and have settled here in new orleans. they love it. there's history and culture. they are some of the nicest people i have ever met. they are so inviting so welcoming to us. one flagged our producer wilson walker into his house and then made lunch for him. people here are amazing. >> i guess so. boy, you guys are getting the red carpet treatment. how about the fans? i guess they haven't arrived
6:31 am
yet for the most part. they are going to trickle in during the week. it is expensive to hang out there for the full week i guess, right? >> it is. i mean, when you're seeing hotel prices for $500 a night, yeah, they're probably going to wait until a few days before. you wouldn't know the super bowl is coming up because it's mardi gras season. all the parades is directed towards mardi gras but i think in the next couple of days there will be a focus of football. >> will crescendo closer to the super bowl. the south bay gave a ceremonial sendoff to our 9ers as they headed for new orleans. the team boarded a big delta charter in san jose yesterday for what could be the ride of a lifetime if they win. the plane taxied the runway and fire trucks bid farewell with
6:32 am

6:33 am
fresher under pressure. so that bodes well for us. >> coach jim harbaugh taking reporters' questions in new orleans. there he is with one of his kids. 9ers have done very well under pressure. >> i guess you haven't bumped into any 9ers just yet, right, michelle. >> no. we haven't bumped into any 9ers players but i'm sure that's going to happen later today or maybe tomorrow. we are still trying to find the 9ers fans and we ran into a couple and i have been trying to convert some of the residents some of the locals here in new orleans into 49ers fans and i think i'm doing it okay. so hopefully every day will get more and more 9ers fans out here in the south. for right now, though, our very own cbs' mike sugerman is on his way out here to new orleans but doing the traditional american way. he got in his car on friday and has been driving from san francisco to here.
6:34 am
i think mike, you're in new mexico, right? >> greetings from gallop, new mexico. it's 37 lovely degrees on the frontage road. no traffic that i'm looking at out of my hotel. how long did it take you to drive back there, michelle? >> to drive to where? [ laughter ] >> from the airport? >> you flew. they told me everybody was driving. they made me drive. >> i talked my wife into thinking it's a second honeymoon. so we left on friday and we don't have a big budget so the first night we stayed in a teepee in san bernardino. the wigwam motel. one of those chic places on route 66. it was very nice actually. we had a terrific time in the teepee. he told her we were going to europe and drove to the london bridge in arizona in lake
6:35 am
havasu city. and that was kind of cool. they put -- you'll be seeing stories every day i'm going to start putting stories on the air tonight and hopefully you will see them in the mornings about all these places. we're off and off route 66. i wanted to stand on a corner in winslow, arizona because my wife passed by and we missed that. new mexico. >> you're supposed to stay up and keep her up to help be a good navigator for her. >> well, look. you get on the highway and you get off the highway in new orleans pretty much. it's not a lot to navigate. but tomorrow will be fun. it's the alien museum where the aliens supposedly landed in roswell, new mexico. so i'm looking forward to that. >> i cannot wait to hear about your travels later on tonight.
6:36 am
can't wait to see you in new orleans. everyone is so welcoming. >> i can't believe you flew. i can't believe that. [ laughter ] >> i know. you better talk to the boss about it. all right, mike. thanks so much. >> all right. >> in new orleans they are expecting hundreds of thousands of visitors in the city for super bowl xlvii and that means some major cash. we are talking about probably more than 4$00 million coming into this city. and remember, this is the first time new orleans has hosted the super bowl since -- the first time -- i'm sorry, the first time after hurricane katrina and there are parts of the city still devastated from the hurricane so they are really hoping to cash in on the super bowl coming to their city. another city cashing in is san
6:37 am
francisco. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington has that. >> reporter: the ferry building is lit up this morning in red and gold. but winning the super bowl could bring in some green for the city and the people who live and work here. now, it's no secret that sports teams bring in a lot of money and winning teams can bring in hundreds of millions of dollars. new orleans the host city for the super bowl should rake in about $435 million. san francisco should see a boost. economists estimate around $120 extra a year in personal income. this can be explained by basic psychology. winning makes fans happy pumped up fans become big spenders and hard workers. people energized naturally want to represent the team by buying merchandise. we're talking about it. shirts, jerseys, hats and food. fans are expected to spend $11 billion on super bowl purchases including 8 million pounds of tortilla chips for the super
6:38 am
bowl parties, 1.25 billion chicken wings and 51 million cases of beer. >> so certainly winning a super bowl improves our national image, at least recognition of the city. so even if you're not a sports fan you're thinking about san francisco a little more. we are getting a little more press right now. >> there's also priceless benefits like improving the image of the city. and, of course, bragging rights. winning is good for the morale of the people who live here and also for the economy. so just a few more things to cheer for this super bowl sunday. elissa harrington, cbs 5. >> thank you. lawrence, i have to tell you, i collected some beads for you the last couple of days. >> how did you get those, michelle? >> i'm not telling t [ laughter ] >> it's a secret. >> we'll talk about that when you come back. glad you're having a good time. we'll have more reports from michelle all week long. headed out in the bay area today, got some changes coming in our direction. high pressure beginning to
6:39 am
build in. a hi-def doppler showing things are calming down rain wise. we had showers over the weekend but not now. over the bay a couple of clouds out there and a mixture of sunshine in the afternoon. winds kicking up at the coastline. temperatures in the 30s and 40s right now. toward the afternoon we are going to see plenty of sunshine temperatures still cool but seasonal for this time of the year. 56 morgan hill. 59 pleasanton. 57 antioch. 56 livermore. inside the bay as high as 60 in oakland and 58 degrees in san francisco. but these temperatures really going to be warming up over the next few days. we'll talk about that up dr. let's check the roads with liza battalones. >> hey there, lawrence, good morning, everybody. stilling about-time delays for the amtrak capitol corridor line, still big delays. up to 90-minute delays on the capitol corridor lines. all other mass transit is okay. no delays for bart, san
6:40 am
francisco's muni, and it's also a smooth morning for caltrain. back outside looking at the monday morning grind, this is it right here. very slow traffic at the bay bridge toll plaza. the backup at the foot of the maze. past the metering lights traffic free and clear into san francisco. the east bay drive along the nimitz, you're looking at traffic in both directions just outside of the oakland coliseum. if are catching a flight to the oakland airport, traffic wide open in both directions of 880. no delays for the san mateo bridge. that's a look at the monday morning commute. you can see right there, san mateo bridge rolling well. that's a look at the commute. here's frank. >> all right. looking good, liza. thanks. 6:41. place your bets next. mayors have more than bragging rights on the line for the big super bowl bets. melissa griffin looks at friendly game day wagers, some going back more than a decade. >> and of course, we're live in new orleans where the city is
6:41 am
prepping for all the visitors coming out for super bowl xlvii. coming up, we'll take a look at a bar that never closes, never. well, well, well. growing up, we didn't have u-verse. we couldn't record four shows at the same time. in my day, you were lucky if you could record two shows. and if mom was recording her dumb show and dad was recording his dumb show then, by george, that's all we watched. and we liked it! today's kids got it so good.

6:44 am
baltimore ravens the purpose of the super bowl to decide whether the 49ers or your baltimore ravens will be crowned the champions of the nfl season but it's also the perfect time for a little friendly wager and "san francisco examiner" columnist melissa griffin is here with more on this year's mayoral bet. >> so frank i have a trivia question for you mr. sports guy. how many times have the 9ers lost the super bowl? >> lost? >> lost. >> zero. >> exactly! i knew you would know. so the 9ers have been to the dance five times and we have won every, single time. so the odds are in san
6:45 am
francisco's favor. even in las vegas, where we are projected to win by even more than a field goal. in fact, in las vegas, you can vote on anything from whether alisha keys will forget a word of the national anthem to how many times jack harbaugh will be shown on the screen. 140. that's the current bet. there's another wager that's important every year that we are in the super bowl and that is a wager between the mayors. so we have been five times and i went into the archives to see what historically those bets have been. so in 1982 when we beat the cincinnati bengals -- bagels -- bengals. i'm hungry. [ laughter ] >> mayor dianne feinstein bet a case of white wine from napa, a dozen crabs and dozen loafs of bread. she asked the cincinnati mayor to contribute to the the save the cable car fund if the 9ers won which we did.
6:46 am
